OAK CREEK, Wis. (AP) -- Police in Wisconsin say seven people are dead at a Sikh temple near Milwaukee, including the suspected gunman.
Greenfield Police Chief Bradley Wentlandt says tactical officers have been through the temple where shots were fired about 10:30 a.m. Sunday. He says they found four people inside the building and three people outside.
He says one of those killed outside is the suspect, who fired on the first officer to arrive. Wentlandt says that officer fired back, killing the suspect. He says the officer is now at an area hospital in surgery.
Wentlandt says police do not believe a second shooter was involved.
He also says the best information he has is that two people, including the officer who was shot, were taken to hospitals.

Police in suburban Oak Creek have not released any specific details about the shootings that took place Sunday morning. It was unclear how many people had been injured.
Authorities have responded with a dozen ambulances and tactical units. At least two people have been taken to the main trauma hospital in the area.
Sukhwindar Nagr (suk-WIN'-dahr NAG'-er), of Racine, says he called his brother-in-law's phone and a priest at the temple answered. Nagr says the priest told him that his brother-in-law had been shot, along with three priests.
Nagr says the priest also said women and children were hiding in closets at the temple.
